Yesterday was John Lennon's 70th birthday.  When it comes to John, I always have this weird mix of feelings. On one hand, I'm so glad that he was alive and so grateful for all the incredible music he wrote. And then, on the other hand, I have such an overwhelming sense of grief, anger and confusion. His was such a senseless murder. John didn't do anything to anybody- he just wrote music. He never hurt anyone- he sang about peace and love. I guess in the end though, I'm thankful that he was around, if only for forty years. He gave us all so much. People still listen to his music all over the world, and I guess in that respect he's not really gone.
